Atiku is First to Pick APC’s N27.5 Million Presidential Nomination Form




Former vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday picked All Progressive Congress (APC) nomination form to contest the presidential election primaries on the party’s platform.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Atiku is the first candidate to pick the nomination form on the party’s platform.

Atiku, speaking to journalists after picking the form charged the party leaders to ensure a level play ground for all presidential aspirants before and during the party primaries.

In his remarks he said: ”Mr Chairman, I need not let you know my political antecedents as far as the provision of a level playing field for every member of this party because that is the only thing or one of the things that will make us different from the ruling party.

”Anyone who believes he has the democratic right should be given that opportunity to exercise that right. It is left to the members of this party and the Nigerian public to make a decision.

”Mr Chairman, it is my therefore my singular honor and privilege to hand over to you or your representative two receipts: one, presidential expression of interest and the second one, presidential nomination form all totaling N27.5million.”

He said he believed he could go on to receive his forms and then go onto the next stage.

The National Chairman of the APC, John Oyegun in his remarks prayed for a day when other Africa nations will see Nigeria as the ultimate before others in the comity of nations.

He prayed God to give Nigerians a leader that will have the interest of the people at heart.

Oyegun also assured that the party is looking forward for a contest that is totally rancour free, believing that one of them will eventually emerge with others joining hands to make sure that Nigeria becomes the pride of black nations.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      Very unnecessary…what does that have to do with this one now? Were you there when he gave her the money? This internet access to everyone is becoming a serious problem in Nigeria. Na wa, the person you are talking about is a human being like you that could read this comment. I am sad for Nigerians.

    Who is going to help us tell this man that we really don’t want him as our President?

    Or is it just me and my family and friends network that feel this way?

    See why an ordinary Nigerian can not compete with this corrupt politicians who have embezzled a lot and have the money to contest, win and steal more to replace all they have spent and more to keep. This amount already automatically knocks out a lot of sincere Nigerians who genuinely have the interest of this country at heart and means well for us or better for us.

    Since 2007, when Atiku left office as vice –President, the Senate and the House of Representatives have been carrying out probes in different sectors of the economy. From the Bureau of Public Enterprises, power sector , petroleum Subsidy and Capital Markets. Where and when in all these has Atiku’s name or those of his family or close associates mentioned or indicted?

    I believe you will restore our lost glories. This is really a welcome development and one that should be applauded by all.
    Atiku’s policy draft yesterday shows that he is really prepared to lead Nigeria and making his policies and plans totally issues bases speaks a lot about the man.
    I believe more good things are still in stock for Nigeria and Nigerians.
    All the best Turakin Adamawa.
    The CHANGE is here. Carry goo!!!

    I’m sure OBJ is just there watching and plotting cos the last thing he will permit is for Atiku or Buhari to climb that seat. He knows his life will be finished, He won’t permit that!!

    @Bleed blue you are not alone. I will rather painfully vote for Uncle Jona again. Painfully with tears in my eyes I will cast that vote for Jona, rather than vote for Atiku. And 27.5 million? This explains it all.

    I’m not voting for any fool above 50. Not Atiku, not GEJ. It’s time for the so-called leaders of tomorrow to take the mantle.

    If Atiku is sincere about a level playing field for all interested parties, then he should insist that there be no fee for the form.

    Elections and party tickets are expensive everywhere. Why do you think our American friends hold all these fund raisers?
